    You should feel 'guilt-free' about it. (How common is the uasage, please?)

    Hi,

    Does 'you should feel guilt-free about it' mean the same as 'you should not feel guilty about it'? If yes, then which one is more commonly used n everyday speech? Thanks.

    While they mean about the same I would probably never use the first one.

    Thanks for the reply. Is the problem with the register of the structure or a regional preference? (Or any other reason, please?)

    It's not a structure a native speaker would use. It sounds unnatural.
